OnePlus is currently believed to have a late-2021 flagship refresh called the 9RT nearly ready to go. A model number previously linked to this putative smartphone has just popped up again in a new leak. It has appeared on Geekbench this time, in a listing that suggests its premium specs include the Snapdragon 888 SoC.

OnePlus is a smartphone brand that has taken to launching T-variants of its flagship devices over the last couple of years. However, it is said to have adapted to 2021's unique conditions by switching this series' focus to a slightly different product, the slightly budget 9R, instead. Now, these rumors may have been given more weight through a new Geekbench listing.

This set of results pertains to the "OnePlus MT2110", a model number that has emerged in a previous leak and has led to speculation that it corresponds to a late-2021 release from the company, as well as vague hints that it might have the code-name martini.

That moniker is nowhere in evidence in this new Geekbench tip-off. However, it might confirm that this "MT2110" (or "9RT") does have Qualcomm's lahaina tag, typically an indicator of Snapdragon 888 power. A cursory glance over a core breakdown suggests it is derived from the original, vanilla version of the top-end chipset here, and not its newer Plus model.

These potential findings may be backed up by subsequent comments posted by the reliable leaker Digital Chat Station on Weibo. The tipster hints that, as OnePlus has decided not to order the Snapdragon 888+ at all in 2021, the 9RT will launch with the 888 instead. That might explain why it is apparently based on the 870-toting 9R rather than the 9 or 9 Pro this year.

According to Geekbench, the putative 9RT will also have up to 12GB of RAM, and run Android 11. Therefore, OxygenOS 12 (or ColorOS 12) out of the box might be a stretch too far for this model. On the other hand, this might be a sign that a launch for the 9RT is not too far away. On that note, OnePlus allegedly has new Buds Z2 to take the stage alongside it.
